Schoolboy, 12, Performs Armed Robbery And Is Placated With Crisps

Article on the BBC. A schoolboy holds up a shop and demands money, using a sawn-off shotgun.

My favourite bit: Mr Guliani said there was no money in the till and, on instruction to load the bag with cigarettes instead, told the boy he was under age. The retailer later offered him sweets and crisps instead.
